I love the idea of having the Punisher root for Devil now that he apparently killed a bad guy, it's a very clever twist that nods to the TV show as well.

Very interesting way of making us doubt Matt's convictions, even though he's probably being framed after all.

Beautiful art, but I'm not digging the narrative style Azzarello adopts here. There are some interesting aspects to it, like the astonishingly blasphemous and beautiful last few pages, but the overly vague voice-over from Constantine really didn't help throughout.

I'll never get tired to say that writing the core superhero team for Marvel or DC might be the hardest feat in mainstream comics, and if anyone was going to be able to do it, that was Scott Snyder. He has by now proved himself over and over, both in more intimate stories (most of his Batman run) and in hyper bombastic ones (for one, Metal), so I believe he's going to make the Justice League great more

Ed Brisson is tasked with streamlining the complex situation that started six years ago with Bendis's run on "All-New X-Men", and it looks like he's doing a good job at it. Sure, the story is nothing special at all and feels like the nth iteration of characters from the future/past messing up with the X-Men, but it is laid out in a very human, family-like way that I really appreciate in an X-Comic more

All these reviews giving low scores because the FF aren't together yet don't see the point. This was a very good introduction to possible new readers but also featured a massively important event for the reunion of the team. It also has the light-hearted feeling that an FF comic should carry, so all seems to point to Slott being the right choice for the greatest super-team of all time.

This one was more of a filler story for the most part, but it actually makes it up in the end with a well needed development and an unexpected and "revoltin" one that should make things interesting going on.

I'm not sure why at the beginning the editor says that this story happens before "Invincible Iron Man" #600, so I guess I'll have to check that out!

A superb annual, with a serious psychological insight in Doom's mind and past, but also hilarious interactions between Doom, Ben and the Council. Amongst all this, a shocking revelation that starts to give a bit of sense to what happened to Doom after "Secret Wars" THREE years ago. Marvel has really wanted to keep the F4's story on hold, but now that we can finally find it out, it's great.
